What distinguishes the Baylor Handbook Series from other available resources is the detailed and comprehensive attention paid to the original-language texts. Each book in this series explains the syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, and deals with text-critical questions that have a significant bearing on how the text is understood.
Rather than devote space to the type of theological and exegetical comments found in most commentaries, this series instead focuses on the Hebrew and Greek texts and their related issues, syntactic and otherwise. The volumes serve as prequels to commentary proper, providing guides to understanding the linguistic characteristics of the texts from which the messages of the texts may then be derived. This 13-part collection has volumes on Genesis, Ruth, Amos, Jonah, Malachi, Luke, Acts, Ephesians, Colossians, Philemon, James, 1 and 2 Peter, and 1–3 John. Accessible and succinct, these handbooks address questions that are frequently overlooked by standard commentaries, serving as essential reference tools for biblical study.
